One Off Event - Computer bookings for 2015 Christmas Lan

Postby Spanky on Thu Nov 26, 2015 12:53 pm

Hey guys,

On the 28th November i will be reposting in this chat to inform all that I will be taking bookings for the computers over the course of the christmas lan.

Do not bother asking for a computer before the second post is up as i will disregard your request.

Stay tuned and i hope to see you at the lan

...Is there some reason why "Commenting in the original thread" is not a suitable mechanism? It's never caused any problems I am aware of in the past...

I am worried that your language tone is not consistent. I cannot see how the angry red text and aggressive tone help EGG be inclusive.

Is there a reason or a need to limit the start time of posts on a timestamped asynchronous communication format? Just say that you will confirm requests for computers from the 28th onwards. People can post claims, but they are not valid until confirmed. Have a list of computers in the original post and cross them off as they are claimed.

The forums are listed as the official communications channel in the constitution, with no notices of any update to that policy posted in the official communications channel. The original post looks like it may be copied from a separate communication program. If the forums are dying, it is because there is no one in the executive using the forums. Leave Facebook as the photo and event review channel and use the forums for everything else.

The GoBlin SonG

Goblins chew and goblins bite.
Goblins cut and goblins fight.
Stab the dog and cut the horse,
Goblins eat and take by force!

Goblins race and goblins jump.
Goblins slash and goblins bump.
Burn the skin and mash the head,
Goblins here and you be dead!

Chase the baby, catch the pup.
Bonk the head to shut it up.
Bones be cracked, flesh be stewed,
We be goblins! You be food!

It was raised at the AGM that the old system privileged people that happened to be in the room when the booking was made. There were also a few instances where people wouldn't even make posts on the forums to claim a computer. So the members present asked for a change to make the system fairer to everyone, which I expect is why the exec announced the start time for bookings ahead of time so that everyone has as much of an equal chance as possible. (As we can see now, the computers were all booked out in fifty minutes, most in less than half an hour.)

As to the later comments about the forums being the official communications channel. The word forum does not appear in the constitution, notification channels that are mentioned are email and the Activate Notice board.
